Surge Suppressor and Power Conditioner
U.S. Patents 4,870,534 and 4,870,528
The SX15 iR2 and SX20 iR2 are specifically designed to upgrade and
improve surge protection for audio, video and computer equipment.
Compact standalone units with optional mounting brackets, the surge
suppressors easily mount in an equipment rack. Both models have two
three-prong receptacles on the front panel. The SX15 iR2 provides 15 amp
protection; the SX20 iR2 is rated for 20 amps.
SurgeX patented Series Mode Pro technology is superior to conventional MOV circuitry. It provides proven, reliable protection; stopping surges
of up to 6,000 volts, without producing ground contamination.
These components meet the most stringent government purchase
specifications for powerline surge suppressors. Their A-1-1 rating assures
you of dependable protection from destructive spikes, surges and inductive
